Meal Planning To (Hopefully!) Save Money

Eons ago, like 5 or 6 years, I did a great job of meal planning.  I would write out at least a week of meals and then buy the groceries for them.  But I fell of the wagon after I had 3 more kids.  In an effort to save money at the grocery store, I went back to meal planning.

Here is the list of meals I will be eating from February 24th- March 14th.  It's kind of a weird time stretch because, frankly, I got sick of sitting at my computer looking for different foods.

Kale and Chickpea Stew    Crock Pot Jerk Pork with Caribbean Salsa
Kale and Chickpea Stew                Crockpot jerk chicken

All meals except when marked can be found on my Food board at Pinterest.
